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.

    It has been fascinating to watch her slow drift to the “Right” on a number of issues. Probably because it parallels my own development, to some extent.

    • American Cannibal

      I’d bang her back in the day.

      So where have you drifted to the right, and/or left?

      • Zenc

        Generally speaking my political opinions are all over the spectrum. That makes it harder to pin down how my personal views have developed than I imagined it would be when I first considered your question a few hours ago.

        But they have definitely drifted to the “Right”.

        To put it bluntly, I suppose I have seen so many “new” ideas and policies crash, burn, and actually make things worse that I’m far more reluctant to entertain “progressive” change than I once was.

        Whether or not those ideas and policies failed because they were poorly conceived and implemented or because some vested interest wanted them to fail seems less important than the idea that ill considered change may cause considerable damage.

        While I recognize that change is not just inevitable, it is essential, I’m increasingly of the opinion that it should be approached with a degree of reticence.

        Maybe I’m just getting old.

          Petite bourgeoisie say that stuff all the time. Maybe you were never on the left, always secretly identified with the mission of the bosses and banks. If you’re asking for forgiveness you will have to make a much more passionate if not detailed confession. “Getting old” is not an acceptable excuse, but I think you know that. Commit to something, the internet is ready to bear witness.

          • Zenc

            Never said I was ever on the Left, I said I’d drifted to the Right.

            I’m not a banker but for some people, I am the Boss.

            Not asking for forgiveness either and even if I required such, it wouldn’t be within the power of anyone here to give.

            I’ve already stated what I am committed to, here on this very site. If you’re that interested, start reading…

          • Thurlow Weed

            Save me the trouble of reading, and just come out with it. What are you committed to?

            Wait, never mind.

  • Thurlow Weed

    Drift to the right. Just do the math: Leftists are underpaid and perpetually poor. Libertarians get paid well, and invited to cocktail parties.

  • Dingbert

    Read Camille Paglia if you’d prefer feminists who inhabit the real world and who are actually libertarian.
