Luke Rudkowski is an independent journalist, activist, live streamer and founder of WeAreChange.org.

Luke began his activism at the age of 17 when he was wrongfully accosted and assaulted by the NYPD. In 2006, at the age of 20, Luke founded the independent and grassroots media organization, WeAreChange. Through this organization and the use of social media, he has aimed to inspire those who no longer feel they can trust the mainstream media to become the media themselves. As support for WeAreChange grew, many followers became active themselves and WeAreChange has grown into a global organization with 160 independent chapters around the world.

Through Luke’s activism and journalism he has been able effect legislation and also influence dialog on a national level on important issues such as extrajudicial assassinations. Along with being featured in multiple documentaries, his work has been highlighted in numerous major news publications including CNN, MSNBC, BBC, The London Guardian, FOX, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, RT, Al Jazeera, among many more.

Luke’s work with WeAreChange has covered a broad spectrum from police brutality, human rights and protests to in depth interviews with many prominent political and influential figures. He is well known for his guerrilla style journalism and confronting prominent governing figures with questions that the public would not hear about through mainstream media. A small representation of his confrontations include Henry Kissinger, Ben Bernanke, Joe Biden, Mitt Romney, Lord Jacob Rothschild, Mayor Bloomberg, Larry Silverstein, and the Rockefeller Family

Luke has traveled around the world covering events, conducting interviews and live streaming protests. On Luke’s work the Village Voice stated, “Luke Rudkowski, whose live stream is one of the most reliable and engaging records of Occupy Wall Street actions.” As some politicians have deemed Luke’s journalism a threat, he has been banned from entering Canada and has been falsely arrested numerous times for questioning people such as Mayor Bloomberg. His reporting has often caused him to face the blunt of police brutality and Luke has been interrogated and harassed by police on many occasions. Police have gone as far as attempting to set up a fake bomb threat in order to refrain him from carrying out his activism.

Celebrity supporters of Luke and WeAreChange include: Rosario Dawson, Roseanne Barr, Rosie O’Donnell, Prodigy, KRS-1, Immortal Technique and Dylan Ratigan.

    really insightful documentary. It really worries me that countries driven by religion can have so much power right now on the international stage… in on form or another…

      It is imperative to identify and root out the use of ANY religion as a socio-political tool for tyranny and the perpetuation of conflict amongst peoples.  No nation or religion has the authority to elevate theocratic motivations above inalienable individual rights.  If a person wishes to govern themselves internally with such beliefs this is their right but the moment they require others to accept such dogma they cross the threshold of enslaving their fellow man.

    Rudkowski you scallywag, running something that actually resembles journalism. 
    And as tragic as Western involvement in Pakistan is how about an expose on their anti-blasphemy laws?  Those cause people to cry too.

    as I was explaining to some Chinese friends over lunch in Beijing
    in China the government owns the major corporations
    & in America the major corporation own the government
    oil extraction is king, drugs are just pin money
    reminding them that the Bush family was involved in the opium wars
    when China refused to accept payment for Chinese goods with British/American opium

    but this has been going on for at least since before Wilson made it obvious
    and attested to be none other than Smedley Darlington Butler
    ah, I don’t think this expose thing is working
    anybody gotaplan? 

    oh & really great video
    it left me speechless for awhile
    to see it all laid out so plainly
