Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report National Edition - 28:22 Produced by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash ****************** Building Bridges Occupies Air Waves with a May Day Special! May Day in New York City Part 2 With Lucas Sanchez, Organizer, N.Y. Communities for Change, grocery workers organizing campaign John Samuelsen, President, Transport Workers Union Local 100 Barbara Bowen, Pres., Professional Staff Congress, City University of New York Mario Rodriquez, Organizing Dir.,District Council 37, AFSCME and Occupy Wall Street activist
May Day began in the U.S. in 1886 as a nationwide general strike, led by immigrant workers, fighting for the 8 hour work day. While celebrated across the globe, it has been largely ignored in the U.S., until recently, when immigrant workers revived it.
Now, a new chapter in the history of May Day was written with the involvement of Occupy Wall Street, the organization making history with its public encampments and protests against the global financial community. And, Building Bridges presente! We were there for this new chapter in the movement, reporting from May Day events throughout the day.
We spiced those events with commentary and analysis on the struggles of the working class in the midst of capitalist crisis and prospects for change, from leading champions of the working class, who build organization and class consciousness.
Occupy with Building Bridges as we acknowledge the blood, sweat and tears of workers, the workers who really create all the wealth and want it back. So, lock arms, unite and fight for the working class, for the 99%. *************************************** please email Building Bridges if you are broadcasting our National Edition.
