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.

Building Bridges: Live Broadcast DC 37 Fightback Rally 6-14  

WBAI Radio’s Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Reports
Produced & Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg and Ken Nash Special Live Broadcast Of

District Council 37's Massive Fightback Rally at New York City Hall
No Layoffs, No Contracting Out and No Service Cutbacks
Tuesday, June 14th 4 – 6 pm

DC 37 rocked NY City Hall with its biggest demonstration ever.On June 14,
DC 37 union members, joined by allies of the working class stood up for
their union rights & economic needs, fought back against the fiscal assault
on our public schools & public health care, the shredding of public services
that prevent child abuse &keep rats from running wild in New York City, and
raised their voices against the drive to crush public employees' rights from
coast to coast. They stood in solidarity to protect the libraries where so
many immigrants enhance their language skills, where so many of the
unemployed use free computers to search for jobs, and where so many
children -especially the city's record 43,000 homeless children - do their
homework. They will spoke out for the public parks and pools, the only
free recreation available for working families.

By letting the state “millionaires’ tax” expire in December, the Mayor and
the Governor are cutting taxes on the wealthy by $5 billion a year. Mayor
Bloomberg has squandered taxpayer money by throwing away
three-quarters of a billion dollars on the CityTime payroll project (where
the contractor is also accused of stealing $80 million from the city), failing
to collect business taxes that are owed to the city, and continuing to waste
some $10 billion on 18,000 private contracts for work city employees could
perform. If his administration can waste that kind of money, then the Mayor
can afford to cancel the service cuts & layoffs, stop the attacks on public
employee benefits and get real about raises for workers. The right-wing
effort to destroy union rights and drive workers hard fought for wages and
benefits further down the economic ladder is a cancer that will spread
unless we stop it.
