his is a preliminary statement from the Iron Rail Book Collective. A more in depth statement on recent events will be forthcoming.

This is a preliminary statement from the Iron Rail Book Collective. A more in depth statement on recent events will be forthcoming.

At about 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday March 9th, 2011 The Iron Rail Infoshop and the building that houses it, “The Ark,” were shut down by the New Orleans Police Department. Alleged code and permit violations were the reasons offered by NOPD for the shut down. The Iron Rail has existed in this space for the past 8 years.

The Iron Rail Book Collective has been told at this point that the Ark will not re-open and all projects and art studios located in the building can no longer exist there. This includes the Plan-B New Orleans Community Bike Project and Hasbin Wilby’s Recycled Art Supplies.

We stand in solidarity with these projects as important elements in the greater New Orleans radical community.

Please visit The Iron Rail’s website and our facebook or e-mail us at .

We will soon be taking donations through PayPal to help us plan our future.

A more complete statement with additional information is forthcoming.

With love and solidarity,

The Iron Rail Book Collective
