Here is the front page from the Riverhead paper on June 3, 1979. The protest was against the Long Island, NY Shoreham nuclear power station.
My sister, brother-in-law and neice were among the protestors and here are the photos to prove it.

Niece's First Protest
If my sister were alive today, she would probably still be protesting. My brother in law and I discussed the event this morning and he agrees that he would do it again. My niece, the baby in those photographs, is a happily married lady living in Connecticut now. I have no idea what her position is on nuclear power and then her interest seeming was mainly on her bottle!
It is obvious that great care should be given to where nuclear power plants should be located. Placing them near high-density population locals is in my opinion pure stupidity. But then, where do they belong? In your back yard?
