"Saying 'no' to the DAPL, which will potentially deprive already marginalised groups of basic needs and foster fossil fuel dependency, is also a matter of economic and climate justice," said Athena Peralta, WCC programme executive for Economic Justice and Ecological Justice.

"The pilgrimage of justice and peace invites us to 'stand with Standing Rock' and support the indigenous communities who are standing up against the destruction of the land," Peralta said.

Speaking of proposals in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, Athena Peralta, WCC consultant for the Economic and Ecological Justice programme, said, "An important opportunity to fix systemic flaws in the international financial architecture has been lost, as the Addis Ababa Action Agenda has failed to enshrine our calls."

"Yet it is even more critical for the churches to continue to demand these reforms in the global financial system. It is a matter of life and death for people living in poverty," she said.

But despite growing evidence that the dominant economic model acts counter to development goals, Athena Peralta of the World Council of Churches pointed out that in response to the crisis, countries have been forced to adopt even more stringent fiscal policies and to prioritize the rights of big businesses over people's economic, social and cultural rights. WCC called for governments and international institutions to pursue economic policies and build frameworks based on, among other things: a more equitable distribution of assets like capital, technology, land, education, and health care; sustainable consumption and production; and social reproduction and ecological protection. Peralta argued that many conflicts worldwide are a product of socio-economic deprivation, eradicating poverty would lead to stronger social cohesion, human security and lasting peace.

"The crisis we face today serves as an important wake-up call for us to examine the financial system and ponder what the financial and economic system is for," says Athena Peralta, consultant to the poverty, wealth and ecology project of the Manila-based World Council of Churches.

Peralta believes that religion can play an important role in finding and addressing the root of the crisis in a world where all human beings should act for the common good. All religions, Buddhism among them, highlight the human responsibility to the impoverished, she point out.
While Peralta is pleased at the burgeoning CSR programmes and green consciousness in the world, she points out global ethics are also vital.
