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.
