The protest was organised by the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development. Cut and pasted from the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development's Facebook:

Monday 10th December is Human Rights Day, and we believe in Human Rights for all people in Uganda. We would like to invite you to join us in a peaceful demonstration against the anti-gay bill outside The Ugandan High Commission.
