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.

    I have totally terminated all contact with my siblings over their psychotic support for the establishment.

    I don’t suppose that anyone here can say the same.

      Love the sinner, hate the sin.

      • Mr B

        Probably what clergymen exclaim as they bugger choirboys.

    • misinformation

      The same.

      I said it (trust me), do I win something?

      • Mr B

        Isn’t it strange how the Imperial West logically levys indefinate sanctions against rebellious nations, yet the common Westerner is incapable of consistently boycotting anyone or thing?

        I saw a Michael Moore stunt many years ago, where he set up a Saddam Hussein-themed petrol station in the U.S., selling very cheap fuel.

        People queued round the block.

      nice avatar. i mentioned to my good friend about 7 years ago that some may consider it reprehensible to wear a poppy during Remembrance Day (i didn’t explicitly say why, i just thought it was commonsense that remembering war deaths was a propaganda technique to concentrate the public’s psychic energy on war, rather than peace). The look on his face immediately signaled in me that i had said something to insult his entire family. his grandfather served in the Kanadian forces. my grandfather was an Enqlish working class labourer. we slowly drifted apart after that statement over beers. some people’s commonsense is another’s extreme mental instability.

      • Mr B

        Very often online, I’m confronted by cynical accusations that I’m insulting WWII veterans with my avatar (occasionally with preposterously ironic threats of punitive action, on behalf of those who’ve died for my freedoms).

        Who are typically dumbfounded by this succinct citation:

        ‘The…”Poppy Appeal”, which supports all current and former British military personnel.’ ~ h**p://en.m.wikipedia.*rg/wiki/Remembrance_poppy

    How sensationally convenient

    • Rhoid Rager

      No, it’s just covering your ass when the pigs come up and take what’s not theirs. I might be inclined to turn that around on you and say: ‘Guest? How anonymously and flippantly convenient?’
