As one of the leaders of the Vancouver Post Office occupation by the 'sitdowners' in 1938, Steve Brodie was singled out by police officials in the riotous aftermath. He later wrote a 24-page memoir:

Bloody Sunday, Vancouver - 1938: Recollections of the Post Office Sitdown of Single Unemployed (Vancouver: BC Young Communist League, 1974). Epilogue by Maurice Rush, edited with an introduction by Sean Griffin.
