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.

Canadian Oil Workers Reject Keystone Pipeline; Ramsay Clark at 85 - A Life Celebrated - 27:51  

Canadian Oil Workers Tell Obama Reject Keystone XL Pipeline: It’s Bad for the Environment and Bad for Workers
Dave Coles, Pres. Communications, Energy & Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP)

Canada's largest union of forestry, energy, telecommunications,

and media workers at a conference “Confronting the Climate Crisis: Can Labor Help Shape an Effective Strategy?” gave thumbs down to the Keystone XL pipeline stating that  “We oppose export
pipelines that kill off our oil resources and kill jobs in the process … To deal with the unfolding ecological policies crisis we must jettison corporation-centric economic policies in favor of ones that address our world’s social and ecological concerns.”
Eighty-Five Years Old: Ramsey Clark A Life Celebrated
Ramsey Clark, Former U.S. Attorney General, intl. human rights activist

Mumia Abu-Jamal, journalist, activist, political prisoner in tribute to Ramsey Clark said,  “…when the bombs were being readied for Afghanistan and the White House was swearing vengeance, who dared to stage rallies, predicting disaster?  And, in response to Abu Ghraib, Palestine, drone strikes and wild Islamophobia, fueled by fear and ignorance who opposed these developments at every step?  And as capitalism sent jobs abroad, hollowing out the middle class, causing dystopian heels in inner cities, who spoke out against the rapacious greed of Wall Street and the resultant prison industrial complex and the death industry of Death Row?  It was Ramsey
Clark and the organization he helped found in two small rooms of his law office, the International Action Center (IAC) 20 years ago. 
That he took some of the toughest cases in the nation and with the IAC, fought some of the toughest battles against the might of the Empire is telling and high tribute.
