Spokesperson of Turkey’s HDP (People’s Democratic Party) gave statements on Sunday (June 2) commemorating the 33 people who lost their lives in the Sivas Massacre of 2 July 1993, where radical Islamists put on fire the Madımak Hotel in the city’s downtown, where hundreds of people were staying at during their visit to the city for a cultural festival organized by the Alevi institution Pir Sultan Abdal Association.

Having visited the Madımak Hotel in Sivas, which has been turned into a Science and Culture Center despite years long calls for it to be a museum, Spokesperson Baydemir said: ‘Be sure that our fight is going to go on until Madımak Hotel is turned into a ‘museum of shame’… Our hearts are with our loved ones (which were lost in Sivas). We have come here once again to be a part of the light that will break through the darkness all across Turkey and all across the Middle East. Those who are afraid of the light massacred this country’s bright and young people 24 years ago…”

Saying after the ceremony that, as HPD MPs, they left 3 cloves in front of the building, Baydemir explained ‘one was for the grandchildren of Sheik Said (leader of the first massive Kurdish rebellion in modern Turkey), one for the grandchildren of Seyid Rıza (leader of the rebellion of Alevi-Zazakis of Dersim), and one for the grandchildren of Haji Bektash Veli and Pir Sultan Abdal (spiritual leaders and poets followed by Alevis)’.

“We know very well that once we – as the oppressed and the sufferer - get together as one, we are going to win over darkness and make light rule these lands”.

The ceremony in Sivas was also attended by main opposition CHP MPs and a number of civil society groups.
