UN owns OWS website


The organizing hub website is registered to:
Paulina Arcos
866 United Nations Plaza
Suite 516
New York, New York 10017

According to a Wikileaks cable, Ecuador's Foreign Minister Francisco Carrion-Mena is "married to Paulina Arcos".  He is also the chairman of the UN's Decolonization committee.

What is Carrion-Mena's address at the UN?  You betcha, it's the same as Paulina Arcos's website!

Question: why the hell is the UN connected to a website promoting Occupy Wall Street's "spontaneous", "organic", and "leaderless" uprising and growth throughout the world?

Question: why was the domain name registered in July 2011?

Question: why isn't the media talking about this?

ADDED: has posted an explanation.  Paulina Arcos paid for the website with her credit card.  Her son (Santiago Carrion) is the one affiliated with the website.  Question: Why the hell is the UN connected to a website promoting OWS and #globalchange?  (I understand that Santiago Carrion asked to use his mother's credit card.  That doesn't address the question, though.  Via her credit card, she has endorsed the website.  Why?)
