This is a project initiated in 2013 under the title "12 calumniated victims in search of an honest lawyer" (12 συκοφαντημένα θύματα ἀναζητοῦν τίμιον δικηγόρον), meant to equally irritate the accusers of the euphonic nu and the defenders of Greek orthodox aesthetics. It has grown into something more radical: the anti-celebration project of Greece's 200th birthday as a sovereign (in a manner of speaking) state.
