A US newspaper has revealed that the FBI has been raiding the houses of anti-Wall Street protesters in Oregon and Washington in what the agency describes an "ongoing violent crime investigation."

The Oregonian newspaper reported that heavily-armed domestic terrorism units of the FBI have been raiding the homes of activists in Seattle and Olympia, Washington and Portland, Oregon over the last month.

The report said that at least six homes have been raided in the two states since July 10.

The FBI has described the raids as part of an ongoing violent crime investigation, linked to last year's Occupy May Day protests, during which a number of minor acts of vandalism allegedly took place.

FBI spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele told the newspaper, "The warrants are sealed... and I anticipate they will remain sealed."

The paper said the agents were searching for "anti-government or anarchist literature or material" and "documentation and communications related to the offenses, including but not limited to notes, diagrams, letters, diary and journal entries, address books, and other documentation in written or electronic form."

Press TV has conducted an interview with Richard Becker, A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, from Berkeley, to further discuss the issue.
