BBC News Staffers Warned Not to Participate in Demonstration

The BBC on Monday sent out marching orders -- or, more precisely, no-march
orders -- to its staff concerning an anti-war protest that is scheduled to
take place in London on Saturday. BBC journalists, anchors, and other news
staff members ("anyone who can be considered a 'gatekeeper' of our output")
were ordered not to participate in the demonstration. Other clerical staff
would be permitted to attend the march and rally in a "private capacity with
no suggestion that he or she speaks for the BBC."
