Fifty years after the United Nations General Assembly adopted
the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, with its guarantee
of free expression for all, the world's newest form of mass
communication is under attack around the globe from laws,
policies and police actions seeking to restrict content.

Expression on the Internet, released earlier this month by
Human Rights Watch as part of the organization's annual
chronicle of rights abuses around the world.

Optimistic article about some scary stuff.
