Six people in military uniforms attached themselves to a fence on the north side of the White House Tuesday to protest the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy against gays in the military.

The display comes one day after President Barack Obama's speech at a fundraiser in California was disrupted by gay rights protesters. Obama was en route back to D.C. at the time of the incident Tuesday.

The six people who handcuffed themselves Tuesday are reportedly veterans and were organized by the group GetEQUAL, which put together the California protest as well. 

The Obama administration has received heat from some on the left for taking its time in repealing the law. The Pentagon has commissioned a year-long review of the policy after Obama said he supported repealing the measure.
