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.

SOS, Save Our Planet: The Peoples Climate March and Beyond - 28:25  

SOS, Save Our Planet: The Peoples Climate March and Beyond 
Christian Parenti, professor of sustainable development at the 
School for International Training, Graduate Institute. He is a 
contributing editor to the Nation and the author of four books, 
the most recent being Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence 
Mary Sweeters, Greenpeace Arctic Campaigner and Coordinator in the Global Climate March. She has spent the last seven years at Greenpeace organizing numerous communities around climate change. She participated in an action hanging a giant banner on Mt. Rushmore to call out Pres. Obama to take action on climate change and especially  to raise awareness of the meltdown of the Arctic ice caps and the dangers of Arctic oil drilling. 

The massive Peoples Climate March is a turning point in the  
demand for an economy that works for people and the planet; a 
world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good 
jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities, we’ll dialogue 
with Christian Parenti and youth activist Mary Sweeters who has 
helped build support for the march and beyond  to incorporate an 
environmental justice agenda in all of our endeavors.  To change 
everything, we need everybody!
