The prison swap between Israel and Hamas began on Tuesday with the freeing of Sergeant First Class Gilad Shalit.

Israel is to begin freeing over 1,000 potential Palestinian Gandhi's that have been locked up for resisting the occupation of their homeland.

 Addameer is Arabic for Conscience. Addameer Prisoners' Support and Human Rights Association reported in June 2011, that the total number of political prisoners was 5554 and 211 are children.


Gandhi pointed out three possible responses to oppression and injustice. The coward's way out, which is to accept the wrong and run away, or to stand and fight by force of arms, but the third and best way is to fight by speaking truth and remaining physically nonviolent.

The Palestinian Gandhi Project is a joint "labor of love" of two women, who I am blessed to know as friends and sisters in the good fight for justice and peace who are grounded in compassion and outraged over the brutal truth.

I met journalist and marketing communications consultant, Pam Bailey in June 2009, when I was "embedded' with a Code Pink delegation who had been invited to Gaza to build playgrounds and witness the facts on the ground, post Cast Lead.

Pam began traveling to Palestine in 2007, and recently returned from a six-month sojourn as a freelance writer and social media instructor for citizen journalists in Gaza Palestine.

The first videos featured on their website were shot in Gaza in January-March of 2011, at the height of the Arab Spring. The next filming trip is planned for January/February 2012, and will begin in the refugee camps of Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

Pam explained, " The main reason why my business partner and I called our latest venture the Palestinian Gandhi Project is that this is the language used by everyone else" [we] respond with pictures and videos...[about] what we mean by "Gandhian.'" [1]
