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.

    That lady seemed pretty uninformed as to the specific chemicals and processes the plant and gas site were using/participating in. Other than that they were “bad” and somehow making everyone move, animals sick and people poor. Was this an enviro tour of rich liberal people going out to the country to see how the poor, uneducated working man is taken advantage of? Are they thinking they are gonna save them from themselves? The whole vibe of this trip was creepy. And why were they harassing the random company truck? Who were those people in it anyway?They were probably told to follow the bus so that they could keep an eye for vandalism or trespassing. Pretty standard protocol when a weird bus full of folks that have nothing to do with your worksite show up and start giving a tour I would think. Was that the CEO of the gas plant or something they were calling shit head in the truck? I’m thinking it was more likely some dude on his smoke break. Kind of a weak video. I’m not stoked about the practices of the gas companies but if this is who the world has representing the fight to revise their practices then…ick man. Thats too bad. Haha. “Start the revolution”. Something about a buncha old people saying that in a tour bus is perfect.

      I am thinking that this was a field trip for We Are Change of New York – ok Brooklyn. So, if you want to know about 9/11 these are your people, they have it memorized I am sure. But if you are looking for research, I think the video is probably portraying the research itself. Unless you count having watched the film Gasland, which all of us here have probably already done ourselves.

      Of course I am guessing a little bit here but Luke Rudkowski only posts videos here, he never returns to reply to comments. At least I have never seen it happen. Perhaps the reason for that is the treatment his mentor Alex Jones receives whenever he is brought up.

    Could someone not wearing a tinfoil hat please comment on the idea that energy technologies exist which are suppressed and could easily solve our fossil fuel addiction. http://pesn.com/
