Bring Nara Home

Bring Nara Home.

28 year old Australian artist Nara Walker will enter a maximum security prison in Iceland this week.

After enduring years of violence, abuse, drugging and rape from her former husband, Nara managed to flee the relationship one evening in 2017 by biting down on her then husband’s tongue-which was forcibly inside her mouth.

An evening that Nara feared for her life and finally managed to escape the torment of her husband, has turned into a life marred by imprisonment and a criminal conviction. 

For the last 15 months Nara has been trapped in Iceland, her passport confiscated by authorities. Authorities that are meant to protect our safety have failed to shine through. Nara was denied medical attention at the time, returned to the hands of her abuser, had her evidence dismissed and is now facing maximum security prison, for acting in her own self-defence. 

Once Nara was able to take herself to hospital, the first medical report showed that she had internal bruising, a fractured rib, a sprained spine and external bruising.
“There was also a medical report later - also shown in court that I had an injury to my arm - which I still suffer from today.”

As a country seen worldwide as a leader in equal rights, it is fair to say this case highlights the real truth concerning many women’s domestic violence cases across Iceland and undoubtably- the world.

We, the people, make a call to the President of Iceland, to stand up and take right action. To grant Nara Walker full and complete pardon from Maximum Security prison, her entrapment in Iceland, and all criminal charges against her name in full. We raise this case due to the fact that Common Law Principles of Self Defence have been overlooked by the Judicial System. We ask you to allow this young woman to return safely to her home country and family.

Over the last 15 months, Nara has made quite an effort via numerous appeals to have her evidence against her abuser taken seriously, with the Icelandic courts ignoring all proof of prior abuse, rape and violence. This includes medical reports, witness statements, photographic and written evidence and most alarmingly- statements under oath admitting to such actions by the abuser himself.

The abuser now walks free, living his life safely and freely, while a young woman faces imprisonment in a foreign country amongst the nation’s most vile criminals.

Nara faces Maximum Security imprisonment in a matter of days, time is vital. Sign now to support our plea to the President of Iceland- we, the people support Nara- let her come home.

A message from Naras family-

“Nara spoke the truth, and she believed that the system would hear her. This is our chance to get the system to listen.
Nara is my daughter, but she could be your sister, mother, aunty, friend, or lover, or the girl sitting next to you, today or tomorrow, she could be you.
Please sign this as a moral support for her, and spread this through your networks fast.
Every minute counts. 
Thank you”


Nara is also facing all court fees coming up to $100,000 USD. You can help bring Nara home by donating here!
