This has little enough to do with Wiki(m/p)edia, however; while UNESCO's
mission does have some overlap with that of the WMF, we are not connected
to them in any substantive way.  Certainly, the mere fact that a cultural
institution of some sort has had its funding cut should not cause us to do
anything spectacularly unusual, as that's a fairly routine event these days.
