It is proven that in a neutral two-component plasma with space homogeneous positively charged background, which is governed by the Vlasov-Poisson system and for which Poisson's equation is considered on a cube inR3 with periodic boundary conditions, the space homogeneous stationary solutions g with energy gradient ∂g/∂ε ≤ 0 and compact support are (nonlinearly) stable in the L1-norm with respect to weak solutions of the initial value problem.
