Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area

WHO WE ARE

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.

Trump Yanks Haitians' Temporary Protective Status - 27:13  

Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) 
yanks Temporary Protective Status (“TPS”) from Haitians –
more than 50,000 face deportation!
featuring 

Steve Forester, Immigration Policy Coordinator,
with the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti
and

Kim Ives, journalist and co-founder of the international weekly
newspaper Haiti Liberté

We condemn the Trump administration’s decision to end TPS for Haitians, and deport the more than 50,000 Haitians who currently live in the United States with that status. These vulnerable people will be forcibly returned to a country not yet recovered from the devastating 2010 earthquake, and the massive hurricanes and cholera epidemics that followed and where the country’s political turmoil further places these refugees lives at risk.  Haiti is in no condition right now to accept deportees.  Attorney Steve Forester,
Immigration Policy Coordinator, with the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti and Kim Ives, journalist and co-founder of the international weekly newspaper Haiti Liberté discuss DHS’s saying get back and how we can fight back.
