The dropseven group is an independent, non-partisan network consisting geographical and virtual activists, students, volunteers and workers who express values of accountability, choice, collaboration, consultation, equality, fairness, freedom, human rights, mutual respect, opportunity, participation, privacy, social justice and transparency.

Building a strong, lasting, and staffed organisation alters the relations of power. Once such an organisation exists, people on the "other side" must always consider the organisation when making decisions.

There is little doubt that organised voluntary effort and action will continue in spite of the uncertainties of government towards it and the encouragement and restraints which result from their policies.
