The Separation of Powers

The Separation of Powers

This term we have been learning about the government and who it works. I choose the separation of power for my info-graphic. In my info-graphic it explains what it is the separation of power ( goes in more detail about the 3 ). It also says why we need it, the balance between them and a bibliography. I think i did really well with my paragraphs and the structure of my info-graphic because I put a lot of work in my info-graphic and I really like the format of how I have showed it.

Voting hasn’t always been the same through out Australia’s history. In the early 1800’s women couldn’t  even vote because people thought they were we were to emotional and not educated enough about politics and voting to get a say. That’s why in the late 1800’s women started wanting change  for once and respect.  Women started debating, wrote articles and petitions along with protesting and could even go to jail for wanting rights. But in later on the women got what they wanted a right to vote and have a say in 1902. Australia was one of the first official countries to let women vote for the whole of Australia (federal elections) and to have there say go to the Federal Parliament. But it still took round about 2 decades for all the other states to follow on. Even tho now women are aloud to vote Indigenous Australians still weren’t permitted to vote (unfair).  But then finally in 1949 Indigenous people in Australia were aloud to vote in the federal elections,but only the ones who fort in the army could vote not all Indigenous people were aloud yet. It took another 13 years (thats a long time) until all Indigenous Australians were aloud to vote in federal elections. Now a days your aloud to vote only when your 18 or older, and that was not until 1973 that you aloud to vote unless you were 21 or older. Australia is one of many countries were you actually aloud have to vote or have a say, and if you don’t vote because it is illegal not to vote you get fined a small amount and that rule started in 1924 and is still going.

I understand that lots of rules have changes over time and it affects us in good and bad ways.

Back in the day why did they chose 21 and not another number?

Prompt: But how did he/she get up there…..

I was in the car with my dog moose (moose – i – bear) and we just came out of the gym when i went to start the engine of my car. I looked at moose to make sure he was sitting on the chairs and not somewhere he would get stuck on our way home. As i looked i saw him stuck at the top of the sits and when I saw that I thought to myself ” but how did he get up there…” there was no steps, no ledges he must have just had so much energy he could climb it by himself.

The btn was about people who have perspectives about Australia day. For most of us it is a celebration for the British in 1700s who found Australia for us. but for the some of the aborigines it is a day that they remember as invasion day because that is when the British took their land. on the 200th year of Australia day 26th of Jan 1988 you would have been able to see a lot of aborigines protesting. Some people thought we should change the day of Australia day so most aborigines could celebrate it as a great day and not invasion day. it’s of people thought we should change the day of Australia day to 1st of Jan because thats when our country federated, some people think the 25th of Jan a day before the British arrived so the last day the aborigines owned the land and some people think Australia should share the 25th of April which is ANZAC day as well as some people think it should be on the day Australia’s  first federal parliament was opened or wattled day in September. Australia has not been changed yet but they are thinking about changing it.

I understand the different ways people can react to the same day

why did they send convicts to Australia and not other countries?

Questions

In Australia we have 3 levels of government federal, state and local each of these types of government take care of a different parts and they have different powers and control. The highest level of government in Australia is the federal. the federal takes care the whole of Australia which includes defence, immigration, money, trade, communication and environment. The second highest is state and it takes care of the 6 states in Australia and the different jobs state does are education, health services, roads and trains and lastly agriculture and some others. then there is local which has over 500 local governments in Australia and they take care of local things in your area like rubbish, pets, buildings and permits. But before the 3 levels  or a federation everyone was doing there own thing. then in 1901 all the states in Australia federated and became one country. But as time went on more and more people started coming to Australia and soon enough they needed more types of government so the state government gave most of there power to the federal government. then in the 1970s local governments became popular and that’s what gave the people there own money and places to live.
