The ticket offices of the Retiro train station stand empty where a poster of Argentina's soccer player Lionel Messi hangs above during a nationwide 24-hour general strike in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012. Argentine President Cristina Fernandez is facing a nationwide strike, led by union bosses who once were her most steadfast supporters. Many trains and bus lines are paralyzed; banks, courts and schools are closed; airlines have canceled flights and small groups of people have blocked highways in about a dozen places around the capital.
