Artists should beautify Riga's downtown

In the run-up to 2014 when Riga will be European Capital of Culture, the artists' initiative Occupy Me wants to repair empty and run-down buildings in the centre of the city. The daily Diena welcomes the idea: "The owners who lack the money to renovate their buildings should seize the opportunity and rent out their spaces to the artists for next to nothing. That would be an investment in the future. ... At the same time it wouldn't be bad for Latvian politicians to pass a law that legalises occupying buildings. That would allow them to be occupied in the right way, as was done in Britain and the Netherlands until not so long ago. Even if it's unclear whether the conservative Latvians would approve of the idea."
