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.

    C’mon, there’s a “Every breath you take, every move you make” joke in here somewhere.

      Oh can’t you see? Drones fly far and free…

    Meh, Sting is retarded. He also was one of a couple artists who were going to do a benefit show for Mumia Abu Jamal in NY about 10-12 years ago and cancelled at the last minute giving in to pressure from the Fraternal order of Police in NY. So his being the wrong side of everything isn’t too strange.

    Was expecting more than this pointless video. “Uh” is all he says

    Gotta take Sting’s side on this one. The video is a hit piece pure and simple and something I might expect from the likes of Alex Jones or David Ickes, which is not intended in a complimentary way. Sting and Trudy have done a lot for the people of South America, and I am omitting the whole Rain Forest thing when I say that. Here comes some radical guy out of the woodwork and fires off a question out of nowhere, while at the same time his press agent is in his other ear telling Luke no photos. There was no courtesy of calling and setting up an interview to see what the man really thought. Just a drive by paparazzi attack by some stranger.

    You know, if I was Sting I would just jump at that chance to slaughter the Golden Goose I had been raising for decades because some knob I didn’t know rudely and unexpectedly whipped a stray question at me as I am walking through the hall with my wife. If he was that dumb he wouldn’t be where he is today, and Luke would not be trying to question him at all. “Hey Sting, you don’t know me or a thing about me but would you like to end your career abruptly this afternoon?” Get real!

    Hell, in the span of the video I wouldn’t even have had time to figure out what this guy was saying with one person in each ear, let alone formulate a thoughtful response. Of course he did not stop to do that, that’s how celebs end up dead at the hands of nut cases. To me Luke was just plain silly to think he would get more than this, with this sort of tactic. Sting was probably wondering how Luke got through security. Luke needs to get over himself a little bit and hang out with real people like Palast and Bobby Jr., instead of AJ.

    Also Sting is my age and remembers when another British citizen living in New York went after a sitting POTUS. Of course I am talking about John Lennon.
