Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten came together to link arms with Charlie King & Tanya Plibersek and Ken Wyatt at the No More event in support of ending family violence outside Parliament House in Canberra

CANBERRA – There's a political chasm between the Prime Minister and Opposition Leader, with vastly different policies on industrial relations, marriage equality, paid parental leave and whether George Brandis should stay on as Attorney-General.

But on domestic violence, Malcolm Turnbull and Bill shorten strode as one out the front of Parliament House on Monday.

Many people from inside parliament house and Indigenous leaders from around Australia watched on as the two political leaders linked arms with Charlie King from the Indigenous anti-violence "No More" program, Deputy Labor Leader Tanya Plibersek and Assistant Health Minister Ken Wyatt.

King's 'No More' program is designed to make men to take responsibility in combating domestic violence in indigenous communities.
