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.

A discussion with Carlos Alberto Torres, free from behind bars after 30 years. He was convicted of seditious conspiracy - conspiring to use force against the lawful authority of The United States over Puerto Rico. Torres was punished for being a member of the armed clandestine organization the FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation), which had taken responsibility for bombings that resultedin no deaths or injuries. He was not accused of taking part in these bombings, only of being a member of the FALN. Torres will also discuss the legacy of the recently departed Lolita Lebron, a Puerto Rican nationalist heroine who blazed her way to notoriety as she led three other Puerto Rican nationalists in an attack on the United States House of Representatives on March 1, 1954.
