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.

NY Rallies to Stand with Gaza! -27:08  

NYC Rallies with International Community to Stand with Gaza!

Millions of people have decried Israel’s crimes against humanity and marched in solidarity with the people of Gaza.  In Europe, activists have turned out in 12 countries, including in France, where thousands defied a government ban.  One hundred and fifty thousand were reported to have marched in great Britain.  Tens of thousands of Palestinians demonstrated in the Occupied West Bank in solidarity with their Gaza sisters and brothers.  Inside Israel 5,000 rallied in Tel Aviv, while 700 marched in Haifa and others in Jerusalem. Some 50 Israeli reservists refuse to serve in the military’s invasion of Gaza.  Elsewhere in Asia, demonstrators came out in many countries, and Australians and New Zealanders marched too.  Protests have also occurred throughout Northern Africa and several cities in South Africa, where government expelled the Israeli ambassador and 50,000 marched in Cape Town.  Several Latin American countries have broken diplomatic relations with Israel.  Now in New York we’ve come together with the international community to say we too Stand with Gaza!
