#Protests - Haass says that violence is scaring off international investors

The Irish Independent's political correspondent has reported here that violence is scaring off international investors according to Richard Haass. Fionnan Sheanan cited Dr. Haass:
"Northern Ireland is competing with every other square inch on the planet to attract investment. And this is the sort of thing that honestly scares it off. It sends a bad message and hurts all the people in Northern Ireland. Nobody benefits."
Read our previous post on the effect of violence and unrest on brand Northern Ireland here. Our posts on the planned 10,000 person march through Belfast city centre on November 30 2013 here and here. This is the tyranny of a minority. As Richard Haass has said, from the submissions received to the Panel of Parties a majority of people in Northern Ireland want compromise and progress.
