From petition creator Gailen David: "My petition along with the media coverage I received in Dallas was very effective in convincing American Airlines to drop their lawsuit against me which was filed to drain me financially as well as to silence me."

Gailen, a former 25-year flight attendant, may be going to jail on Sept. 5th due to an article he wrote describing what he would do if he were CEO of American Airlines.  This is after he was fired by American and also sued by the multi-billion dollar corporation after he posted a series of comedic video parodies exposing the mismanagment that has been allowed to florish for years at American Airlines and other corporations throughout the United States of America. 

Protect the "freedoms of speech" of workers everywhere who are being victimized by executives at some of America's largest companies. American Airlines is using harassment, termination, lawsuits, and even the threat of incarceration to silence employees.

      He should not go to jail or be sued by a company for making a video that was funny and truthful about American Airlines.

      I believe employees should be able to voice their opinion ; it is called ' freedom of speech'.

      This would be the most blatant abolishment of someones freedom of speech, and decidedly would be a shameful decision in this country! Furthermore, there have been no precidence set for freedom of speech laws in social medium and recently the courts sided in favor of an employee that used social media to offer complaints about their employer sighting the lack of laws or even guidelines set forth through concensus for this form of excersizing ones right to freedom of speech.
