February 23rd 1763 the Berbice Slave Rebellion took place in Guyana. The rebelling Africans were organized as a fighting force by Coffy, who was a house-slave. The rebels burned buildings and cane fields and attacked and killed a number of White men and women. As plantation after plantation fell to the Africans, the European population fled. Coffy, accepted by all the rebels as the leader of their rebellion
? with Renee Garvey and 6 others.ebellion, then declared himself Governor of Berbice, and set up his administration at Hollandia and Zeelandia. He set up work gangs among the Africans to farm the estate lands to produce food supplies to sustain the population. After awhile Coffy began encountering difficulties with his forces after some sections felt that by defeating the Whites meant that they could now act as they pleased. Small groups roamed across the countryside plundering abandoned estates, while some others spent most of their time drinking rum and dressing up in European clothing token from the plantations. Soon the Africans began clicking up into different groups. THIS SHOULD SOUND FAMILIAR?Those who had been field-slaves began to express disapproval of Coffy, who was a house-slave. Tribal jealousies would emerge and fights would break out between members of different African tribes. Creole Blacks also at times attacked those who recently arrived from Africa. These divisions seriously undermined the military strength of the rebels and helped to encourage the Whites to regroup their forces. Meanwhile the differences between Coffy and the leader of the field slaves, Atta began to grow and eventually Atta challenged him for the leadership. The opposing supporters fought each other and after Atta's faction won, Coffy killed his own close supporters before shooting himself. The Berbice Slave Rebellion, which lasted for 10 months, marked the first serious attempt by a large group of enslaved people to win their freedom in Guyana. In Georgetown, Guyana a monument commemorates the Berbice Slave Uprising of 1763-1764, and features Coffy, the movement?s leader. THEY WON THEIR FREEDOM FOR AWHILE BUT LIKE US TODAY SO MANY GROUPS AND FACTIONS THEY JUST COULDN?T GET ALONG.OUR UNITE IS THE ANSWER!
