The You Stink campaign Sunday promised Prime Minister Tammam Salam's government a "surprise" if the group's demands were not met within 72 hours.The demonstration, which kicked off at 6 pm, was mostly peaceful until nightfall when a group of young men began throwing bottles and setting off firecrackers near the government headquarters around 8:30 p.m. after organizers had said protesters were free to go home.You Stink, which had distanced itself from any protesters clashing with security forces, said 19 people were arrested by police Saturday night.The ISF had said protesters succeeded late Saturday night in crossing the first barbed wire fence erected in front of the government headquarters known as the Grand Serail in Downtown Beirut.
