I see a sign there 'Stand Up For the Prophet' - once can imagine the (quite reasonable) disdain or dismissal on the part of the general British public, if the same said 'Stand Up For Jesus'. Another sign refers to 'abuse' - the slaughter of the French journalists and the policeman, I'd say that qualifies as abuse.

Do they have the right to protest peacefully?

Yes, of course. The focus I think though, is telling.

Why don't they protest all the beheadings that are done by ISIS? A cartoon is a bigger priority for them, than rampant fundamentalist violent Islam?

Have you not noticed virtually every Islamic Nation is fighting ISIS.
The UAE has been bombing ISIS strong holds for almost a year.
World wide there have been outrages against ISIS by Muslims.

Also stop and think---- the captured Jordanian Pilot who was killed by ISIS. Do you think he was bombing ISIS targets because Jordan was supporting ISIS?

I don't know. The only rights we have are the rights our government chooses to give us. From what I understand, people in England do not have the same freedom of speech we have in America.

However, it does seem strange to have a demonstration in England to protest something that happened in France.
