Basing its analysis on the temporary occupation of one of the major expressways during International Women’s Day 2017, this chapter considers the possibilities of articulating and embracing a sense of belonging to a collectivity. Engaging Jodi Dean’s work on communism, it argues for self-critical form of collective thinking, formulated here as “we and I,” that is attuned and strives to overcome to the trappings of social privilege within the context of communal struggle.
