This thread is being a little too vague and slightly misleading. The reason for the warrant and seizures was because there had been destruction of government property (probably by spray-painting since they're looking for paint), interstate travel with intention to riot, etc. Says so right at the beginning of the warrant.
They're looking for the paint, clothes (and other items) that were worn during the painting.
Basically, somebody got caught spray-painting government property and that's what this warrant appears to pertain to.
Someone decided to cherry-pick one aspect of the warrant and spread that around.

WOW! This is sorta, Tora, Tora, Tora, on our rights. My wife & I have been looking for a reason to leave the norms of society and live in the moutains. We've allways talked about when it "gets bad" we would go off grid.
This is the "gets bad".
When the Government can invade my home because of my views on said Government. Arrest me for somthing I may have said here on ATS. Or other sites, It's time to go. Freedom, it's becoming just another word. I hope all of you guys the best. I plan on sitting tonight and signing off ATS with a thread to thanks those who I befriended and apologise to those I may have offended.

Elements of OWS who objected to participation in a march with a permit have called for demonstrators to engage in disruptive activities including:
A “Wildcat March” in which protesters distinct from the labor-dominated march would march without a permit, potentially disrupting pedestrian and vehicular traffic beginning at 1:00pm at Sara D. Roosevelt Park (2nd Avenue and E. Houston Street). Organizers of this action have advocated the use of so-called “Black-Bloc” tactics to confront the police, sometimes violently, like those experienced during the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh in 2009, in which barricades, rocks, and trash bins were used in clashes with law enforcement;
A “Bike Bloc,” in which relatively small groups of cyclists would be instructed to try to tie up automotive traffic. The cyclists would leave Union Square at 9:00am and attempt to randomly disrupt traffic;
Attempts to block Manhattan-bound automotive traffic at bridges and tunnels, as well as protesters attempting to block ferry passengers;
A “NYC Hoodie March Against Police Violence,” which will occur at the same time and place as the “Wildcat March”
A “High School Walk Out,” in which high school students will leave class at noon and congregate at Fort Greene park in Brooklyn for a May Day BBQ
Picket lines staged in front of various businesses across the five boroughs.
The flyer also makes mention of the type of more violent activity that was seen recently this month in NYC:
There are fissures within OWS, but a “respect for diversity of tactics,” which includes everything from peaceful protests to the kind of vandalism directed at Starbucks in April, when demonstrators tried to smash the windows at the Starbucks location at Astor Place, has been embraced by the movement.
Be reminded that the incident at Starbucks this month also resulted in the arrest of several anarchists, including one long-time Occupy protester, for the alleged attack on a NYPD officer with a metal pipe.
