Tensions between Black Lives Matter and their All Lives Matter camps remain high after three police-involved shootings last week claimed the lives of two civilians — in separate incidents in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Falcon Heights, Michigan — and five officers — during a protest in Dallas, Texas.

A new video from CNN, however, shows protesters from the respective activist groups embracing each other during a run-in in Dallas on Monday.

"We're all brothers and sisters," one of the protesters can be heard saying. "This is how you kick down a wall."

"It's time for us to stop this today," says an emotional member of the Black Lives Matter camp. "No more walls."

"Today we're gonna show the rest of the country how we came together," echoes an All Lives Matter representative.
