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.

    the converse of this is true too
    anything you delete can be restored
    unless you take the necessary steps to completely wipe the disk with a magnetic field

      Not only that but now Luke has alerted the authorities that this can easily done, and worse, that we already knew how to do this. Which we either did know, or we knew someone else who did know how.

      Luke, you’re not a poker player, are you? From now on try to hold your cards a little closer to your chest, eh? Some things you don’t want to reveal until you have to…

      • BuzzCoastin

        good point
        there’s a lot I know about nefarious activities
        but it’s not in my benefit to tell how to do those things

        you can be pretty sure
        every pig pen will soon need a magnetic erasure gizmo
        more MIBC profits too

        • Ittabena

          Yeah, cause this will be noticed. Meh!

          • BuzzCoastin

            Luke and his crew have handlers
            not saying the NSA has done a deep dig
            but they keep tabs on every potential disruptive force

            his latest video is on using cameras to control feral pigs
            definitely gonna piss some pigs off

            Rudy has already been tagged by the SPLC which contracts w/ the feds for ‘noticing’ all sorts of things.

        Just a matter of getting the data into “teh cloud”. Maybe they’ll catch the images floating through the vapor when pigs fly.

      Well he did alert everyone to this now, but what it means going forward is that they have to destroy or confiscate your property now (SD Cards) in order to ensure they can delete evidence, and that’s a little different than just taking your phone or camera and destroying your files on the scene, but I’m sure the end result is the same.

    Not sure how many times this lesson has to be taught to the “authorities”: We all have HD cameras in our pockets now, stupid.

      they’re tough little cookies to crack, but from my recent experiences I think police are becoming hip to it and are slowly learning their lesson to not act out of hand, but we still have a long ways to go.
