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.

Hundreds Rally Against Prison Industrial Complex And Mass
Incarceration at the Lincoln Correctional Facility in West Harlem

The Occupy Wall Street Prisoner Solidarity Subcommittee along with

hundreds of allies heeded Occupy Oakland's call to action and marched
in solidarity with Pelican Bay prisonerâs hunger strike protest, with
brothers and sisters who are dispossessed by the criminal INJUSTICE
system, with immigrant detainees & with political prisoners everywhere.
They raised their voices against the growth of the privatization of the
prison system and mass incarceration - the New Jim Crow. The
characterization of the system of mass incarceration as the New Jim
Crow raises the racist nature of the prison system, pointing out that
between 1970 and 1995, the jailing of African Americans increased
seven fold. African Americans make up 12% of the U.S. population -
and 53% of the nation's prison population. There are more African
Americans enslaved under correctional control today - in prison or jail;
on probation or parole - than there were in 1850.
