Demonstrators block the Pueyrredon Bridge during a one-day nationwide strike in Buenos Aires on November 20. In the first general strike for a decade, anti-government unions and farmers protested what the unions call a fast-growing tax burden and Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's refusal to raise the minimum threshold for income tax payment.
