The latest from Freedom House:

As the 12th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) launch of a massive crackdown on the Falun Gong spiritual group approaches on July 20, Freedom House remains deeply concerned about the ongoing human rights abuses committed against adherents, their families, and increasingly, their lawyers.
Freedom House strongly condemns the brutal crackdown today by the Malaysian government against tens of thousands of demonstrators calling for clean and fair elections in Kuala Lumpur and calls on Malaysian authorities to respect the right of its citizens to free assembly and to immediately release all those detained.
On the eve of Southern Sudan’s independence, Freedom House expresses deep concern about serious and ongoing human rights abuses in the South Kordofan and Blue Nile regions and calls on President al-Bashir to cease attacks on innocent civilians and return to peaceful negotiation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).
