George Bush's memoir turns to crime
US activists, inspired by British campaign against Tony Blair's book, vow to move George Bush's memoir into bookshop crime sections
The special relationship is being turned on its head, with US peace activists following the lead of their British counterparts to launch a campaign to reshelve George Bush's new memoir, Decision Points, "where it belongs": in the crime section of their local bookshops.
Inspired by a British campaign which saw Tony Blair's autobiography, A Journey, appearing under crime, horror and even fantasy in UK bookshops, the protest blog Waging Nonviolence is urging its supporters to "Move Bush's Book Where It Belongs", and post pictures of the autobiography in its new location on a campaign Facebook page.
According to the campaign organiser Jasmine Faustino, Bush's memoir "defends several of the criminal policies that he implemented during his time in office, including the invasion of Iraq and the use of waterboarding". She calls on readers to "reshelve the book to where it really belongs", and "take a picture of your 'mission accomplished'".
