Mass Protest in London

After protesting against Britain's recent murder of Jackie Nanyonjo, a Ugandan lesbian, further protests occured yesterday outside Uganda House over the Kill the Gays Bill.

A protest has taken place outside Uganda’s High Commission in central London opposite Trafalgar Square over the plight of gay men facing potential imprisonment for breaking the country’s anti-gay laws.

The protest was timed to coincide with two separate court cases in Uganda on Monday.

The court cases are those of British man Bernard Randall, which has been postponed until December 4th, and the Executive Director of Spectrum Uganda, Samuel Ganafa, who is being held under unlawful arrest.
