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.

Breaking the Gaza Blockade with MP George Galloway - 27:37  

On Breaking the Blockade Against Gaza: Viva Palestina
George Galloway, long-term member of the British Parliament,
and outspoken and well-recognized defender of human rights
and supporter of Palestine

Following the massacre in Gaza that began in December 2008,
Galloway called to action the world community to organize

convoys to distribute medical aid, to highlight the inhumanity
of the continued siege of this devastated area, and amplify the
shift in public policy and growing solidarity of people around the
world towards greater support of the Palestinian struggle. We
listen to Galloway, recently in Brooklyn as he speaks about the
blockade and prepares for his latest mission to send a flotilla of
boats to Gaza to break the blockade by sea.
