"BRITISH actress Vanessa Redgrave, who campaigns for prisoners at the US detention centre in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, today denounced alleged torture at the jail and demanded the repatriation of the inmates.
Ms. Redgrave was speaking in the town of Venissieux, France, home to two of the prisoners held at the centre.
"The health and detention conditions at the Guantanamo base are a genuine reason for urgency," she said in French after meeting relatives of the detainees, Mourad Benchelalli and Nizar Sassi..."

The murder of Paul M Johnson isn't an issue Vanessa Redgrave is concerned with.
Vanessa Redgrave lost her "marbles" a very, very long time ago. She's very anti-semitic and pro Palestinian for a very long time.
I remember when she was a ardent spokesperson for the PLO and Palestinians. She has been an old Lefite for a long time, but she hasn't let get in the way of a nice lifestyle.
Very good actress with unpalatable politics. I remember her Zionist protest speech when she won an Oscar--was it the 70's. This is not the week to complain to Americans about our treatment of terrorists.
She'd be a likely first target of those monsters if she dared step foot in Jeddah or Riyadh.
That's right. It's easy to forget her off-camera activity since she gets so little work these days.
Ironic, isn't it... something akin to being a leech.
Exactly. This sounds like she's flipped completely. Maybe she's got some serious mental illness problem.
That might be it. Maybe this was intentionally bad timing and was the only means for her return into the headlines.
She, like Madonna, are very much over the hill. It is a shame that she is now so unimportant.
Has Vanessa Redgrave done anything besides protesting for every gutter cause, in the last 20 years?
Alzheimers? She seems to be stuck in 60's!
IMO, if Redgrave feels so much for these vermin, she should give each one a blow job and a check for $25,000.
Ms. Redgrave is an incredibly talented actress (I refuse to do the PC thing and call males and females "actors"!) Unfortunately, like most celebrities, her politics STINK.
Vanessa is one of the acting world's bizarro's.
Too bad she has so much company.
I don't think she's been in any movies lately, so she had to get her face on camera somewhere!
I think we should give her a one way ticket to Saudi and put those monsters to the test! Throw Madonna and the rest of the Hollywierd lefties in as well.
