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

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.

    Interview? What interview? What in the world do you think you accomplished here? For that matter, what the hell have you ever accomplished? What have you changed? Have you helped our situation at all? Or are you merely happy marginalizing all of us who see big problems until we are laughing stocks in the rest of the world’s eyes.

    You are not part of the solution, but you are part of our problem.

    I have to say that any benefit of a doubt that I was giving you in my mind is gone after seeing this video. You have shown yourself and your cohorts to be nothing more than some unruly middle schoolers boosting candy from the family grocery store and thinking you were oh so cool for it. Grow the hell up and quit making us all look bad. No honor, no scruples, that is what you have shown us today. Not that Henry doesn’t deserve it, but I can think of a couple guys who you have scurrilously blindsided recently who certainly didn’t deserve the treatment you gave them.

    Wanna see someone who has accomplished something? Here are a couple of activists. One is the singer, the other is the oddly pretty blonde singing along in the front row, they are married and her name is Trudy. You might recognize the singer, I think you two have talked recently.

    Think I’ll win the T-shirt? (mwahahahah!!!)

      Shhh… It’s journalism and they are doing it for your own good. Even though you didn’t ask nor want them to.

      “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the
      strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them
      better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
      whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly;
      who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort
      without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the
      deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends
      himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph
      of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails
      while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold
      and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

        You, my friend, are a victim of disorganized thinking. You are under the unfortunate impression that just because you run away you have no courage; you’re confusing courage with wisdom

        Oh Ted, I am pretty sure Teddy, one of the worst criminals of his day if you were to ask the Panamanians, Colombians, or the East Indie workers who were segregated under their own personal Jim Crow system, was talking to his big stick in this case. Certainly he had a more genuine object for his admiration than someone who would employ such tactics.

        “whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood” Oh, come on now Ted. Luke?

        Well at least you injected another note of humor into this thread, whether you intended to or not.
