    10 showing that Ugandan civil society is uniting against the proposed anti-gay bill. Uganda Civil Society Condemns Anti-Gay Bill10 December 2009 Ugandan civil society groups marked international Human Rights Day on Thursday by calling for the withdrawal of what they call the discriminative and oppressive Anti-Homosexuality Bill from the countrys Parliament.The Civil Society Coalition on Human Rights and Constitutional Law which represents nearly 20 Ugandan advocacy groups says the bill is an unprecedented threat to the fundamental human rights of Ugandans. We can either turn further towards an agenda of divisionism and discrimination and pay the costs in terms of internal suppression of our own citizens coupled with international isolation and marginalization or we can embrace diversity human rights and constitutionalism.The bill proposed by David Bahati the member of Parliament for the Ndorwa West constituency provides for life imprisonment for any Ugandan who whether inside or outside the country engages in what the bill calls same gender sexual activity.
