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.

    This was one of We Are Change’s best interviews. Almost brought a tear to my eyes. Thanks Luke. Peace.

    It’s good that this guy blew the the whistle, but you know, nothing happened. The criminals at HSBC are still doing the same shit. Besides a ridiculous fine, there were no consequences.
    Also, HSBC can’t be the only one doing this stuff. You just know this kinda shit is rampant.
    It is unfortunate that our world is run by criminal psychopaths.

      ‘Too big to jail’, so HSBC was fined an amount that was equivalent to a few months profits. When the fine is less than the profit you’ll make by breaking the law why follow the law? ‘Too big to jail’ is like ‘Too important to jail’, something so many politicians & CEOs could hide behind in the future, & with the media in your pocket you can achieve anything.

    This is why I try not to be too partisan. There are a lot of good people who believe in doing right from all walks of life.
