No speedup on multi-processor machine?

I am using Python Thread library for my parallel processing course
project. I am doing matrix convolution on a multi-processor machine
running Solaris. I just found out that no speed-up is obtained with
threading. It is probably because of something called GIL in Python.
How can I get around
that GIL and get speed-up?
Thanks in advance.
