A protest has been organised this week in London against Uganda’s proposed law to execute and jail gays.

Activists will gather outside the Ugandan High Commission in Trafalgar Square on Thursday, which is also International Human Rights Day.

The protest has been organised by the Gay Activists Alliance International (GAAI), with the support of Gay Uganda, Sexual Minorities Uganda and OutRage!.

Speakers will include Davis Mac-Iyallam the co-founder of GAAI, Peter Tatchell and Skye Chirape.

It is also hoped that gay Ugandan John Bosco Nyombi, who was granted asylum in the UK, will attend.

The protest will be held from 12-2pm.
