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 West Coast Shuts Down Ports,

While NYC Targeted Goldman Sachs

OWS demonstrators, NY at Goldman Sachs

The Occupy movement in West Coast port cities called for

shutdowns of their ports. In solidarity OWS, NY targeted
Wall Street giant, the owner of half of one of the world’s
largest transportation and shipping outfits, Goldman Sachs.
The ports were targeted because of the firing of port truckers
organizing at SSA terminals in LA, owned by Goldman Sachs
and the attempt to rupture ILWU union jurisdiction in
Longview, WA by EGT, an exporter led by Bunge Ltd, owned
by 1% bankers which reported a $2.5 billion profit last year
while impoverishing workers in Argentina and Brazil.
These economic blockades were in response to the nationally
coordinated attacks on the Occupy movement.
