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.

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.

    Except that, you know, the internet IS a den of pornographers, thievs, and terrorists. And in direct proprtion to how much good reglar peeple have done with the internets, we now have been shown “government” has used their leverage to develop it as an exponentially more powerful tool of repression and control. Same future for Bitcoin once it has enough mass to matter.

    I find it disgusting how libertarians so readily wrap themselves in a cloak of human liberty to sell their ideas. They live in an old paradigm of get-rich off of others, and delude themselves (and others who are sold on their ideology) that human freedom is achieved by allowing competition to go unhindered by government. They suffer the same delusions as liberals–they both feel they understand society well enough to harness from the top either through coercion or through manipulation of resources by a scant few.

    Don’t think he sold this well enough. If we can get bitcoin up and running to a critical mass then we can boycott established currency – the ultimate boycott. Then you can kiss goodbye to usury and fractional reserve banking — ye haw!!
