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.

Will we allow Sudan's military and their allies, Saudi Arabia, and its partner the U.S. along with the United Arab Emirates to crush the people’s movement for democracy? - 28:33  

Will we allow Sudan's military and their allies, Saudi Arabia, and its partner the U.S. along with the United Arab Emirates to crush the people’s movement for democracy?
with
Milton Allimadi, Prof. of African History at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and founder of The Black Star News


In scenes redolent of the Arab world's 2011 pro-democracy uprisings, an emboldened grass-roots protest movement had taken root in the heart of Sudan, its center, Khartoum, when the dreaded Janjaweed militia opened fire on the unarmed, pro-democracy forces who were  demanding a transition to civilian rule, after the ouster of President Omar Hassan al-Bashir.  The death toll from the attack on the unarmed pro-democracy camp protestors now exceeds 100, with hundreds more injured. But, the peoples empowerment movement’s resolve is strong as they continue to press for a total work stoppage.  Prof. Allimadi traces the evolution of the democracy forces during the thirty year rule of the al-Bashir dictatorship, examines the conflicts amongst the military forces, the implications for the further destabilization of the region and the particular role of Saudi Arabia, the United States, Russia and China, while the push for peoples power and civilian rule continues.
