Anti-government activists attempted to storm into the Finance Ministry in Beirut Tuesday to demand the state halt salary payments to lawmakers, prompting security forces to block access to the building and briefly cut power to it, a security source said.The surprise action was organized by the "We Want Accountability" and "Leave Us Alone" movements, offshoots of the You Stink group which was born from the country's waste crisis.The activists have called on citizens to head to join their demonstration outside the ministry's Imports Directorate, located in Beirut's Beshara Khoury neighborhood. On Sept. 1, You Stink activists held a protest inside the Ministry of Environment to press for the resignation of Environment Minister Mohammad Machnouk.An activist later claimed that ISF is holding the ministry's employees captive inside the directorate's building.
