How to move the brake drum?

Need to change the brake shoe, but the brake drum is too hard to move. Any suggestions?
Thank you,

Re: How to move the brake drum?

use a hard plastic mallet/hammer and hit it around the edge of the drum(not on the face) to free it, sometimes the rust locks the 2 surfaces together
