The Sivas massacre (Turkish: Sivas Katliamı, Madımak Katliamı) refers to the events of July 2, 1993 which resulted in the killing of 37 people, mostly Alevi intellectuals, and two hotel employees. Two people from the mob also died. The victims, who had gathered for a cultural festival in Sivas, Turkey, were killed when a mob of Salafists set fire to the hotel where the Alevi group had assembled. Among those who died were many musicians, poets, writers and teenagers, as well as two people who worked at the hotel.
The media coverage of the massacre was similar to the coverage of Gezi Park and other protests for over a month, i.e. either non-existent or full of false accusations.
