http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=126821399 (link good)
This story from NPR's Morning Edition Friday, May 14 (by Anthony Kuhn) is the best analysis I have read or heard about the "clamp-down" on NGOs. It quotes externsively from Deng Guosheng, who heads the NGO Center at Tsinghua. It also quotes Xu Zhiyong from Gongmeng, who says he wants now to be more strategic in what he does and that he will no longer accept foreign funding. Prof. Deng also mentions the local level efforts to make it easier for certain NGOs to register. If anyone would like more info on that, please let me know directly
