Through a framing device of a Parliamentary hearing, Kefi explores the stories of women affected by such a misogynistic abuse of power. By centring her production on the story of a character named Mel, Kefi demonstrates the length of time over which such abuses were carried out, and the overwhelming suffering caused by betrayal and broken trust.
When Mel meets Dave, a supposed carpenter who wants to get involved in the protest movement, she is convinced she has found her soul mate. Founded upon the arrests that charged the environmental activists inhabiting Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station with trespass, Any Means Necessary profoundly demonstrates the exploitation of human rights that exposed one of the largest national police scandals of all time.
Summer sees the beginnings of a major public inquiry into undercover policing, with almost participants called to give evidence. The police admitted that the deployments had not been properly managed, even though seemingly rigorous legal controls had been introduced years ago.
BETRAYED: THE SHOCKING STORY OF TWO UNDERCOVER COPS
With such lax legal regulation, it is unsurprising that activists are monitored too closely, and that police officers could, potentially, prompt a protest themselves. Any Means Necessary is a telling of the stories of women whose lives undercover police officers have torn apart and presents the struggle towards justice for these women that the Metropolitan Police treated as expendable.
