This might be a stupid question...

The OUTPUT chain only deals with packets originating from the firewall
itself. Your rule is fine, but you want to add it to the FORWARD chain
instead, which deals with packets going to/from your network to/from the
iptables -A FORWARD -o ppp0 -d 188.8.131.52 -j DROP
