This is a recent feature in GSN on what is happening in Uganda:
"Kill the Gays Bill" on agenda as Uganda Parliament returns. Uganda puts Anti-Homosexuality Bill on official parliamentary agenda despite international outcry.

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.
