Police Shut Down Iron Rail Infoshop in New Orleans

On Wednesday the Iron Rail Infoshop was shut down by police under the pretext of permit violations and an inability to produce a business license. The Iron Rail has existed in this location for the past 8 years. The shut down included the entire building known as "The Ark" which also houses the Plan B Community Bike Project and Hasbin Wilby's recycled art supplies, as well as numerous artist's studios which sometimes are used as dwellings. the Iron Rail hosts the Crescent City Anti-Authoritarians meetings and is the hub of anarchist organizing and other alternative projects in the city.
