Shackelia Jackson: ‘People thought I was obsessive, but that activism helped me to heal’
Human rights defender Shackelia Jackson is next in our Women Who Win series, fighting against police violence and brutality in Jamaica...

Next in our #WomenWhoWin series is Shackelia Jackson, who refuses to give up in her quest for justice after the death of her brother, Nakiea, who was shot and killed by police in 2014. They had been searching for a ‘Rastafarian looking’ robbery suspect – Nakiea fit the description and so was shot dead in his small restaurant.
The case against the officer who shot Nakiea was dismissed in 2019, after one of the key witnesses did not attend court. According toAmnesty,he was too afraid of what might happen afterwards: in 2015, 8% of all murders committed across Jamaica were at the hands of law enforcement officials.
‘We are scared of the police, of their very presence,’ explained Shackelia.
Not only has Shackelia had to deal with her grief, she has also faced intense intimidation from the police and an unresponsive legal system.
Still, she refuses to be silenced.
Our Women Who Win interview series celebrates strong and inspirational female trailblazers, shaping the future for us all, and Shackelia Jackson and her fight for justice is that in a nutshell.
