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.

Occupy Wall Street plus Labor and Community Support = 28:06  

“Occupy Wall Street” Creates a Movement
with Labor & Community Support Despite Police Repression.

Occupy Wall Street, the movement whose organizational forms & demands
are evolving continues to pick up support including organized labor.
Transport Union Local 100, hospitals Local 1199, city workers' DC 37
AFSCME, UAW Local 2110, Teamster Local 814 and building service
workers Local 32-BJ and the United Federation of Teachers were just
some of the unions which pledged solidarity at a massive support rally
in NYC which drew tens of thousands. An earlier rally saw thousands
march from the newly named “Liberty Square” on Wall Street to Police
Plaza over what they view as excessive force and unfair treatment by
the police. The foundation of “Occupy Wall Street” is recognition the
richest 1% own more than half of this country’s wealth while 1 in 5 in
New York City live in poverty. Instead of bailing out people and helping
them get jobs, government bailed out the same institutions that had
created the economic crisis, giving them trillions of dollars. "Occupy
Wall Street” continues to grow and represent the 99% of the have
nots against the have mores and more as they march and rally
and gain more adherents across the city, the nation and the world.
