How and Why Adam Kokesh was Framed

WeAreChange goes to the home of activist and YouTube host Adam Kokesh to find out what happened on the night he was raided and arrested.

Kokesh’s home was raided following a video he released of him loading a shotgun in Washington D.C. as an act of civil disobedience to protest laws that restrict or deny people of the 2nd amendment. Kokesh did not threaten anyone with the shotgun or use it in any violent way. When his home was raided, the police said that they found magic mushrooms in his safe along with his guns which is a felony charge in Virginia. Kokesh and his housemates who were there on the night of the raid claim the drugs were not Kokesh’s and that he is being set up. They claim the house and the safe was completely clean of any illegal substances and that they actually witnessed police bringing in evidence bags that were already full. Kokesh is currently being held in solitary confinement and has been denied bail.

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.

    If you are deemed a threat, they’ll come and get you.

    pigs planting incriminating evidence?!?!?!?
    who woulda thunk it?

  • Saladin

    I live nearby and know the housemates. The police would not have needed to plant any evidence. And it’s not like Kokesh wasn’t actively begging to be thought of as a threat. It’s just funny that for all the gun nuts’ talk about “we need these serious guns to protect ourselves against the government,” when the day actually came they didn’t raise a finger and let the PARK POLICE take them with flashbangs.
