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 City Univeristy of NY Students and Faculty Protest - 27'  

NYC Students Stand Firm After CUNY Police Bully Them During Occupy
City Univeristy of NY (CUNY) Protest Over Tuition Hikes
Occupy CUNY Student Members Hector Agredano & Emma Francis-Snyder Barbara Bowen, President of CUNY Professional Staff Congress

Students, faculty, Occupy CUNY and OWS demonstrated outside
Baruch College to protest the Board of Trustees' meeting, where the
Board passed measures to further squeeze the public out of CUNY.
Even though these meetings are legally obligated to be open to the
public, Baruch's president announced that the Vertical Campus would
be closed to almost everyone by 3pm. However, protestors reclaimed
CUNY on the outside, and exposed the Board's illegitimate actions inside.
Police violence has already occurred at Baruch, in response to protests
about tuition hikes, and unfair labor practices targeted toward adjunct
and other faculty, and the privatization of the public CUNY system. But,
like pro-democracy movements from UC-Davis to Occupy Wall Street
the protestors stood firm - our schools and communities are not for sale,
and we will not give up our rights to free speech and assembly.
