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.

    entertainers are system supporters
    how could they bite the hand that feeds them?

      >entertainers are system supporters

      I’m confused here Buzz. Where you talking about Stevie, or Luke? Because I think it is equally applicable to both.

      • BuzzCoastin

        Luke operates off private donations
        offers up his content for free
        does a real service that mass media doesn’t
        Stevie
        has always been blind
        always paid by the system
        all his content is copyrighted for profit
        and doesn’t really provide something
        that can’t be supplied by the factory that produced him
        to me
        those are the salient differences

        PS: when he joins Russia Toady
        he jumps the shark

          Russia Today, like Press TV clearly have agendas, but that doesn’t mean they should be discounted in total. They both have excellent guests marginalized by western media. Just don’t expect them to be critical of Khomeini or Putin.

  • Andrei Serde

    He’s so blind !

  • smooth_operator

    How can he be so blind to the truth?

  • Ittabena

    Why won’t any of these entertainers end their lucrative careers when some kid with his over sized ball cap pulled over his ears gives them a shot at it? If they would just speak out We would have the Change that we Are in such need of. I mean that’s all it would take to bring Change, right? Just one superstar singer to speak out in a hallway?

    All the magical wheels would start to whir, the clouds would part and the sun would come shining through again.

    Where is the sense in this? How is this supposed to bring Change? What is this inane strategy?

    Or is this just a way for Luke to avoid getting a real job? (As was pointed out in the previous posts comments.)

    Acting like a nut job for twelve years has done nothing but get us all lumped into the nut job category. Unless that is exactly what he is trying to do, he should just stop it now.

  • Ittabena

    I love the spin on the video title too. I didn’t hear Stevie justify anything. All I heard was him getting out of a sticky situation in a hallway while he protected his wallet.

  • mannyfurious

    So, what you’re saying is that Stevie Wonder is a “liberal.” Big surprise.

    GET IN LINE, STEVIE!!!

  • gustave courbet

    Just because someone is famous, doesn’t mean they are well read or thoughtful. I trust Stevie to make music, but I’ll go elsewhere for my trenchant political analysis.
