View of the Constitución train station and empty bus stops in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during a 24-hour general strike, on September 25th, 2018. With no public transport or taxis running, Tuesday's strike was largely respected, as many shops remained closed and citizens found themselves unable to get to work. The strike was called to reject an austerity budget that Argentine President Mauricio Macri says is needed to secure funds from the International Monetary Fund.
