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.

Protestors Arrested Declaring NYC an ICE-Free Zone - 27:03  

Protestors Arrested Declaring NYC an Ice-Free Zone, in Push-Back Against Obama’s  Resolution To Deport Central American Refugees

The ICE-FREE NYC campaign, comprised of New Yorkers of all Backgrounds Who Want Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Completely Out of Our City

In response to the ongoing raids of noncitizens and the recent announcement of raids against Central American refugees immigrant rights advocates, labor unions, faith-based groups, and community members gathered to say NO to raids, demand and end to deportations and announce the creation of ICE-FREE Zones throughout New York City.  First, Obama, already known in
immigrant communities as the Deporter-in-Chief, announced the deportation priority program called Priority Enforcement Program (PEP).  Shortly after the announcement of PEP, home raids in NYC increased at an alarming rate. Then, on Dec. 26, 2015, Obama’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced nationwide raids aimed at deporting the primarily women and children, many of whom are refugees who fled some of the most violent regions in the world, in particular Central America.  But, the ICE-FREE NYC campaign  demands that the Department of Corrections and NY Police Department must end all collaboration with ICE, prohibit the sharing of information about New Yorkers between ICE and all City agencies that may reveal an individuals’ immigration status.  The ICE-FREE NYC campaign stands in solidarity and will put their bodies on the line to protect immigrant/refugee families and create ICE-FREE Zones within NYC's five boroughs and Long Island.
