Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area


WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

Haiti's Earthquake Exposes The Faultline of U.S. Domination - 28 minutes  

Haiti’s Earthquake Exposes The Faultline of US Domination
Ray Laforest, Haitian-American labor leader
Kim Ives, journalist with the newspaper Haiti Liberté

Ray Laforest discusses how the earthquake in Haiti revealed the faultlines of United States intervention in Haiti’s governance and economic development and Kim Ives warns against reconstruction that proceeds under the supervision of foreign troops and international development agencies capable of usurping the interests of the vast majority of Haitians. Ives insists Haitian sovereignty must prevail and international aid must be oriented away from neoliberal adjustment, sweatshop exploitation and non-governmental charity, and towards systematic investment in Haiti's own government and public institutions.
