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.

    Oh…my…god….Guerilla at home gardening. These people are commenting treason and should be branded as terrorists. How dare they try to steal profits from Monsanto and friends and the corporations that produce and sell most of the food.

    What are they thinking? Dont they know by growing their own food they are avoiding roundup residue and other pesticides that are essential to your health? Dont they know the health benefits of trace amounts of round up in your food? It will make you smarter and grow big and strong and it improves liver function and kills cancer. We need to squash this before it gets out of hand and this thing turns into a trend.

    Homeowners’ associations and even city councils are pretty much stuck with applying existing regulations across the board, no matter how absurd it seems. Otherwise they get taken to court for selective enforcement. And for every person who thinks home gardens are wonderful there’s another one who thinks they’re ugly and lowering his property values. If you want home gardens in urban/planned communities do what these people did and change the laws/rules.
