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.

The Walkerville protest tents and encampment came down at Wisconsin’s
state capital after Gov Scott Walker’s budget victory slashing education,
health and other services in the state budget while increasing tax breaks for
the wealthy. He even attacked child labor laws. A week earlier the State
Supreme Court narrowly approved Walker’s union busting measures
stripping civil service unions of most of their effectiveness and eliminating
the dues check-off. While Walker and the Republicans may loose control of
the State Senate in the recall elections scheduledin July, that will come too
late to reverse much of the major damage that has been done. We’ll talk with
key organizers in the struggle as to what lessons have been learned and
what is to be done to organize for future victories.
