Green Materialism follows New Materialism?

Are anti-capitalists — such as Occupy activists — realising Marx's vision of 'social humanity' as in his Theses on Feuerbach, 1845?

It seems like the principles and strategies of anti-capitalists have the capacity to form a life without money — substituting direct democracy for the outdated operating principle of money in capitalism.

Those are the arguments in a recent paper.

Find a short version of the 'Green materialism' talk in the Green Agenda panel at the recent Historical Materialism Australasia 2015 conference (University of Sydney):
