Somali Muslims arrive for mid-day prayers at the Greeley Islamic Center on 8th Avenue Thursday September 11, 2008. They have become a familiar sight on the streets of Greeley. Scores of other Muslims the day after they were fired from their jobs at Swift due to the inability to negotiate breaks that would allow them to practice their religion while at work. More than 130 Muslim workers were let go after walking off the job. In respect for the anniversary of 9/11 the workers kept their comments and activity low. They plan to all claim for unemployment together in a gesture of solidarity. Almost all said Greeley was their home and they intend to stay. (PHOTO/ DENNIS SCHROEDER/ ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **
