The World

June 23, 1986

At least 20,000 people demonstrated near a nuclear power plant in northwestern Switzerland, demanding an immediate shutdown of the country's five nuclear plants. The demonstration outside the Goesgen nuclear plant was mostly peaceful, but police used water cannon and tear gas to disperse a band of about 50 masked militants who broke through the plant fence and set a wooden hut afire.
