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

AU1 Forte - 17'' AU2 Tickford rims on all corners, Super low springs,
KYB shock absorbs + camber castor kit and a 3.45 LSD.

Built with spanners, not chopsticks.
